The internet and computers have become very advanced. Operating systems and visuals now bolster Retina displays with crystal clear screen resolutions. This allows for the opportunity to become very creative when choosing new fonts in 2018. There are many notable fonts and typeface characters that highlight just how futuristic and advanced fonts have become since the block Courier serif characters of old.
Here are 15 Modern Fonts You Must Use for 2018
1) Linoette: Rounded Edge sans-serif font with natural shapes that have the options: light, regular, semibold, bold and heavy font types. Created by Joel Carrouche.
2) Maddac: A clean font that resembles pieces of construction paper cut out on a page. Created by Isaac Taracks and Maddie May Krol.
3) Ugo: A fun font that could be used in scrapbooking. The character set comes in four types: Ugo line, Ugo color, Ugo 3D color, and Ugo 3D shadow. Created by Valeria Santarelli.
4) Ailerons: Typeface inspired by the wings of airplanes with rounded curves on the edge of each character. The design makes for a streamline effect. Created by Adilson Gonzales.
5) Carioca: This is possibly the single most colorful font ever created by man. The highlights are fresh and it is noted as being an experimental typeface created by Tano and Yai Salinas.
6) Chelsea: The look, feel and design are straight out of the 1920s. Very elegant and screams sophistication. This would be useful for an invitation, wedding announcement or nightclub billboard. Created by Antonio Rodrigues.
7) Frinco: A font that uses only uppercase lettering. Created by Ryan Pyae. The appearance is an eclectic mixture of old world Viking lettering and futuristic elegance.
8) Gogoia: Styled after a Brazilian theme of tropical indulgence. Designed by Alan de Sousa. The font takes on the appearance of something a person would see in the game, Monument Valley.
9) Kanji: This font is specifically designed around the Japanese lettering system. The characters look as if they are experiencing an enlightened zen state. Created by Pedro Azedo.
10) Lombok: Futuristic stylized font with a clean and fresh appearance. Created by Alexandre Pietra.
11) Sanity: Created by Sur Interactive with an experimental monospace display. Large, bold shapes with stem highlights.
12) Sideboard: A font that appears much like Bodoni and created by Sergey Melnikov.
13) Slot: A font by Adrien Coquet and Hugo Dath. This typeface highlights the possibilities for using two varying colors when stylizing the font. The blank semi-circle section between the two colors offsets the curvature and gives the appearance of a candy cane if used with the colors red and white.
14) Besom: A brush style font created by Krisjanis Mezulis. The font creates the appearance of brush strokes. A notable recommendation for this font would be to use it as a lighter colored font on a darker background. The font seems to be displayed better in that manner strictly from an aesthetic perspective.
15) Helv Children: Helvetica, hand-drawn writing font by Matthias Guggisberg, a graphic designer from Switzerland. This font resembles a black marker scribbled on the page.
